Been tagged in this and other things recently so wanted to acknowledge and apologize. It’s embarrassing seeing the things I used to think were funny as a kid and I’m very sorry to anyone I hurt. This kind of language is unacceptable and I’ve definitely learned that.
As a psychologist, I want to remind you that racism is a type of trauma. Even racial microaggressions can cause PTSD symptoms. Your Black friends are being traumatized right now, and every day. Many of them suffer PTSD from experiencing racism. Please keep that in mind.
George Floyd’s murder is not only an outrage. It is the latest manifestation of a system that callously devalues the lives of Black people. Our struggle is and always has been about justice—not justice on paper, but real justice in the real lives of real people.
I do things every day without fear, because I am privileged, and I am privileged every day because I am white.
Being not racist is not enough, we must be anti racist.
Social change is enacted when a society mobilizes.
I stand in solidarity with all of those protesting.
